Sahil ‘The Demonstealer’ Makijha seems to be a very busy man indeed. Many people consider him to be the face of the Indian Metal Scene and one can see why. He is an active member of not one, but four different bands and he is constantly touring and releasing new material. This year has already seen a release from his comedy rock project, Workshop. Now, Sahil has rebooted his death metal project, Reptilian Death. What started out as a parody act, has now become something serious.
What kind of a name is Gregzeye? It sounds an awful lot like Greg’s Eye. Upon some further inquiry into the origin of such an uncommon name, it turns out that my initial suspicions about the name was spot on. The members had actually named the band after their friend Greg, who had visited one of their rehearsals after hurting his eye on a beach umbrella! Well, don’t let the name put you off. Because, listening to their debut album, it is not difficult to see the passion and talent that these lads possess.
In today’s metal scene, there are very few bands that have shown consistent quality outputs. Even the best of bands have had some rough patches during their career. But this observation does not apply to the death metallers from Yonkers, New York. Immolation is one of those few rare bands that have given us quality albums time and time again. What is it that they do, that makes all their albums so enjoyable and gives them such consistency?
Motörhead is a band that any true metalhead would be familiar with. They are one most revered and respected metal bands in the world. With their combination of the NWOBHM sound with fast punk elements, they re-energized the sound of metal. They have been around since 1975 and are still going strong. Many of today’s emerging bands cite them as their influence. Such is the glory and legacy of Motörhead.
Sorrows Path is band that was formed in 1993. 17 years later, in 2010, they released their debut album. In the time between their inception and the release of their debut album, this band has faced a lot of obstacles and tragedies. But despite all that, they have released a wonderful debut album.
